20 Most Recent Fantom Drives Titanium II (TFD160U2) 160 GB USB 2.0 Hard Drive Questions & Answers

Can I ask a question about this Comstar 640gb external Hard Drive? What kind of power adapter for this external Hard
Drive? How many volts? I lost my power adapter for this hard drive while moving.

To expand upon what ikkenom said, this will work much better done from the command line.

(Assuming Windows XP)
Click "Start", "Run...", type "cmd" and click [OK] or press [Enter]. From the command line type "chkdsk V:\ /F". You can optionally include the "/R" option to check for bad sectors on the disk (Be patient, this will take a long time, especially if there are bad secors).
If this fails, add the "/X" option. This dismounts the volume before proceding. You may need to reboot afterwards before examining the drive.

A MS article describing this error implies that is is likely a physical disk error and the technical reason why the error mistakenly implies a paging fault: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;141117

I know how distressing it can be to loose pictures and video you've worked so hard to acquire/produce. Good luck!

The inpage operation error actually refers to an error going between the drive and your RAM. Try the drive on a different computer, if it works the problem may be in your RAM, if it doesn't the drive is corrupted and can't be read under normal circumstances.

If it does work, let me know and I'll link you to a memory diagnostic program to test your RAM. If it doesn't work on the other computer, let me know your Country, State and City and I can refer you to a nearby Data Recovery team.

You sound like you know some techie stuff, so I'll speak more techno-geek ...

Run on your C: drive the "chkdsk c: /r"

Make sure your drivers for the D's connection are still viable; not corrupted from the power outage. Remove and re-detect the USB Hub, if that's what you connect with...

It is not seeing your D at all, so it's not something ON your D that is bad; its in your computer itself.

If your disk is in warranty period. Visit service. Or try change external case with electronic parts.

Are the drives still under warranty or not? All drives will fail.

If they aren't, break open the case and put the drives into new enclosures or place them in a desktop (if you have extra IDE or SATA connectors available) as secondary drives. You may need adapters if these are portable drives. This will let you see if the enclosure has failed or the drive itself. The one that is clicking may not be usable (clicking usually means a head problem). However, you should be able to recover files. You may need to use a file recovery program, like Recuva, if the drive has lost the partition information.

I hope this helps. If the drives are under warranty, decide if you want to void your warranty. The data will not be recovered under warranty with most external drives.

(I've replaced several hard drives when they went bad. By cloning the drive before it fails, I haven't lost data. I've also attempted to rescue data after the failure. I try to back up important data to optical discs as well as flash drives and backup HDDs.)
